If you are contacting us to report a new or unusual sighting of a collared coyote (or other collared species), please send us the animal’s general location and a brief description of your observation (ear tag color, collar color, body condition, activity, etc) and specify if you would like more information. Although we want to be a resource to individuals, it is usually not possible to provide assistance other than educational support in handling specific coyote conflicts.

Former research associate Justin Brown, after just catching 434 for collaring

Coyote 434 is a good example of how human behaviors, such as feeding wildlife, can result in coyotes becoming a nuisance. 434 was captured on February 18, 2010, in a marsh surrounded by a subdivision and miles of urbanization. She was a young female, approximately 10 months old, and weighed 13.1 kg. Although this was the peak of the breeding season, she was not in breeding condition. A GPS collar was placed on coyote 434, which means that she was located by satellites on an intensive schedule (at times, this was every 10 minutes, other times every hour).
